WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

After years in exile, the aging Casanova returns to Venice where old rivals trick him into seducing a castrato, who Casanova discovers is actually a woman in disguise. Together they hatch their own hilarious scheme to save his reputation and protect her identity. Inspired by Casanova's own memoirs, Minnesota composer Dominick Argento composed this warm-hearted comedy for the Ordway's opening season in 1985. Featuring The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra.
